Mfuleni Cricket Club’s preparation ahead of the 2016-17 Western Province Cricket Association tournament has been boosted by a burgeoning partnership with the Cape Town Cricket Club.

The relationship will eventually see players from the southern suburbs mentoring and training cricketers from the Blue Downs-based Mfuleni Cricket Club.

“We are proud of what we have developed at our club so far, and this sort of help will go a long way in improving conditions for us.

As much as this is about cricket, it’s also about our community, which is very pleasing,” Mfuleni Cricket Club chairman Xolisa Sokayi said.

Plans are afoot for Cape Town Cricket Club to facilitate the establishment of a new field, including the relocation of a neighbouring pitch, on the outskirts of the suburb of Mfuleni.

Earlier this month, Cape Town CC administered a substantial donation of equipment from Australia’s Valley District Cricket Club to Mfuleni CC.

“We’re excited about this development. We’re in a position where we can give back, so to speak, and we do so happily.

The guys from Valley Districts Cricket Club were out in South Africa last year, for the World Golden Oldies Cricket Festival.

“We struck a solid relationship with them then – and are happy to continue the kit arrangement with Mfuleni Cricket Club,” said former CTCC chairman Roger Moult.

Cape Town Cricket Club’s premier league team features semi-professionals Kyle Verreynne and Brendan Young – and former Cape Cobras all-rounder William Hantam. The Plumstead-based club also fields one reserve B league–and two third division C– units. Mfuleni Cricket Club, meanwhile, fields the third division E and women’s promotional league sides.

“We are always looking to learn from others. Whether we go to Cape Town Cricket Club for some training or they come to us, it’s going to be a good thing.

We have a good bunch of players, and the guys at CTCC have been good to us. I’m really looking forward to seeing this happen,” said Mfuleni Cricket Club first XI captain Bhutana Daki.
